None of the vapers are surprised by compact POD systems designed for vaping liquids based on nicotine salts, which confidently replace powerful box mods and sub-ohm tanks. Such devices have become an integral part of the life of vapers since, with their help (provided that strong liquids are vaped on nicotine salt), you can satisfy your nicotine hunger in just a few puffs.
In this market segment, Vaporesso is considered one of the leaders in the production of POD systems with the XROS line known to almost every vaper. Devices of this series managed to win the trust of vapers with their good taste transfer, simplicity, and reliability. But the company’s developers are trying to make them even better, so the third generation of XROS saw the light, bearing the uncomplicated name Vaporesso XROS 3 Pod Kit.
Vaporesso XROS 3 Pod Kit is a compact POD system equipped with a powerful built-in battery, powered by an Axon chip and designed to install any XROS series cartridges. The device is made in the traditional form factor for POD systems – a small rectangular stick with rounded edges, thanks to which it has excellent ergonomics and takes up minimal space in your pocket.
The device is very simple, it is activated when tightened, but at the same time it is quite autonomous. An important feature of such a POD system is the ability to install any cartridges with built-in XROS series evaporators. You can buy Vaporesso XROS 3 Pod Kit in eight colors – Black, Navy Blue, Space Grey, Icy Silver, Royal Gold, Sky Blue, Rose Pink, Mint Green.
Although this POD system belongs to the category of simple devices, the manufacturer has tried to equip it with a little more than usual, thanks to which the vaper will receive everything he needs for a trouble-free use of the device:
- Battery pack XROS 3 Battery;
- Cartridge XROS 3 0.6Ω MESH Pod (pre-installed);
- Cartridge XROS 3 1.0Ω MESH Pod;
- USB Type-C cable;
- Reminder card;
- Warranty card;
- User’s manual.
XROS 3 Battery
Among the devices manufactured by Vaporesso, their POD systems, in particular, the XROS series, are in particular demand among vapers. Naturally, no one will argue that other devices from this manufacturer – box mods, pod mods, tanks – are of high quality, but vapers especially liked the POD systems.
There are two reasons for such love for XROS series devices – good taste transfer and autonomy. Deciding to continue the success of this series, the company decided to release the third version of the line, called the Vaporesso XROS 3 Pod Kit.
The company’s designers did not particularly change the design of the new device, so the POD system is made in the format of a compact rectangular stick with rounded edges, so there will be no questions about the ergonomics of the device.
The POD system is made in a fairly small size – 115.1 * 23.6 * 13.7 mm, and the case is made of aluminum alloy, so such a device will not burden the pocket. The manufacturer offers the Vaporesso XROS 3 Pod Kit in eight colors, among which you can find both strict monochromatic and original gradient colors.
The Vaporesso XROS 3 Pod Kit uses a built-in 1000 mAh battery – for such a small device, this is a pretty decent indicator, thanks to which two to three days of battery life are guaranteed (the exact battery life depends on the installed cartridge, the intensity of vaping, and even on the air temperature).
The battery is charged using the USB Type-C connector located on the bottom of the device, with a current of 1A, so the time it takes for the battery to be fully charged will be about an hour.
An important feature of this POD system is that it works under the control of the notorious Axon chipset. The device provides automatic power selection depending on the resistance of the installed evaporator, it is activated when puffed or when you press the only round “fire” button. To control events (activation, charging, battery level control), a small LED indicator is provided at the bottom of the POD system.
XROS 3 Pod Cartridge
One of the key features of the Vaporesso XROS 3 Pod Kit is that you can install any XROS series cartridges into it, so the vaper will have no difficulty finding consumables. The cartridge is held in the battery pack by magnets.
Especially for this device, a new cartridge with a built-in 0.6ohm mesh coil has been developed, thanks to which the vaper will get a very decent taste. Interestingly, the manufacturer promises up to 20 days of using the cartridge without compromising the taste.
The device provides airflow control, implemented in the form of a small slider on the front panel, by moving which you can set a hole with a larger or smaller diameter.
To refill the cartridge, you just need to remove the mouthpiece and pour 2 ml of e-liquid into a small hole with a check valve, and e-liquids can be used both on saline and on freebase nicotine.
Conclusions and impressions
Vaporesso XROS 3 Pod Kit is a worthy successor to the popular line, although there are no cardinal differences from previously released versions. But if a vaper is looking for a simple, self-contained, and, most importantly, tasty device, then he should definitely buy the Vaporesso XROS 3 Pod Kit.
